Digital data sets that describe aquifer characteristics of the Central Oklahoma aquifer in central Oklahoma

Metadata Updated: November 17, 2014

This data set consists of digitized polygons of a constant recharge value for the Central Oklahoma aquifer in central Oklahoma. This area encompasses all or part of Cleveland, Lincoln, Logan, Oklahoma, Payne, and Pottawatomie Counties. The Central Oklahoma aquifer includes the alluvial and terrace deposits along major streams, the Garber Sandstone and Wellington Formations, and the Chase, Council Grove, and Admire Groups. The Quaternary-age alluvial and terrace deposits consist of unconsolidated clay, silt, sand, and gravel. The Permian-age Garber Sandstone and Wellington Formations consist of sandstone with interbedded siltstone and mudstone. The Permian-age Chase, Council Grove, and Admire Groups consist of sandstone, shale, and thin limestone. The recharge data set was created from digital data sets developed to produce a map for a previously published report. Most of the recharge to the Central Oklahoma aquifer is infiltration of precipitation through outcrops of the Garber Sandstone and Wellington Formations, the Chase, Council Grove, and Admire Groups, and the alluvial and terrace deposits. The median recharge to the aquifer is 1.61 inches per year.

Access Constraints Use Constraints: This data set represents the recharge rate to the Central Oklahoma aquifer described in Parkhurst, Christenson, and Breit (1996). The areas that show the recharge rate to the aquifer were digitized and published at a scale of 1:250,000 in the report by Christenson, Morton, and Mesander (1992). These areas represented at this scale are indicative of broad, regional trends and should not be interpreted as site specific., Access Constraints: None.
